Ask a Doctor
- How can I tell if my Ask A Doctor question has been answered?
Good question! After you’ve submitted your Ask A Doctor question, it will be sent to one of our doctors or childcare experts, who will provide a private and personalized answer. After the answer has been approved by our editorial team, you will receive two kinds of notification and the answer also appear directly in your In Box. The first notification is via email, so make sure to check your spam folders if you aren’t getting our emails. The second is through an alert on your Profile page. We’ve also made it easy to see if you have any new alerts without actually going to your profile page. See that green box near the top righthand side of the screen that says “My Profile”? The little orange number next to that box shows you how many new alerts you have waiting. Simply click on “My Profile” and it will take you straight to your Profile page, which will have a link to your new answer.
- How long will it take to get my Ask A Doctor question answered?
We try to answer everyone’s question as quickly as possible, which usually means with 24 hours of submitting the question. Some questions, however, might take a little longer.
- Can I submit an Ask A Doctor question over the weekend and will it get answered?
Of course! You can submit an Ask A Doctor question any time you want and we will do our best to answer it as fast as possible. We know that parenting doesn’t stop on the weekends, so neither do we.
- Can Bundoo doctors provide diagnosis for my baby?
No. Comments and discussions from Bundoo pediatricians, health and childcare professionals are intended for educational purposes only, and do not constitute medical or healthcare advice or diagnosis. Consult with your doctor, or 911 in the case of an emergency, for diagnosis.

When you receive a doctor response in Ask A Doctor you have the option to give feedback on that answer. Select which response best fits your situation and if you’d like, ask a follow-up question.
